How We Can Help
Sustaining a business is often harder than starting it. Along the way, as it grows, you may need our help. Think of the Chamber as an extension of your company; take advantage of the partnerships, collaborations and other opportunities available to Chamber investors.
If you are planning to expand into international markets, the Chamber can facilitate important connections to access business leaders in those foreign markets through the Trade Development Assistance Center.
In addition to providing ongoing support to investors interested in global trade, the Chamber also hosts meetings and seminars detailing the requirements for doing business in other countries.
Training and Education
The Chamber staff leverage the wisdom and talents of our investors for peer-to-peer learning. Among those are, town-hall-style forums structured to inform and educate investors about critical issues facing the business community. Forum topics have featured local development policy, education, state-level taxation, and infrastructure maintenance and initiatives.
The Study: Irving Innovations Center connects corporations with the neighborhood to develop targeted training and certifications designed to solve corporate workforce needs.
Service Corps of Retired Executives (SCORE) provides free business counseling to business owners and Chamber investors at the Chamber office.
The Chamber hosts an assortment of networking events tailored for different audiences, for example, investor-to-investor receptions or legislative updates with local elected officials. These opportunities develop and enhance business relationships and foster relationships with decision makers.
